Shopping Spree After Credit Card Accidentally Left In ATM
Police have released CCTV footage of the man they believe can assist with inquiries.
It's every forgetful person's worst nightmare: a credit card accidentally left in an ATM was found and used in a shopping spree.
A woman in Victoria accidentally left her credit card in an ATM at the Brandon Park Shopping Centre two weeks ago, after depositing money into the machine.
Police believe that a man in his late 20s then found the credit card and withdrew an amount of money. The card was then used to go on a shopping spree across Melbourne, making purchases at a service station in Wheelers Hill, a shopping centre in Malvern East, and another shopping centre in Richmond.
Police would not release exact figures of the amount spent, but told ten daily that a "small amount" was taken from the ATM.
They have now released CCTV footage of a man they believe can assist with their inquiries.
He is of a Caucasian appearance, believed to be aged in his late 20s, and about 185cm tall with a solid build and a sleeve tattoo on his left arm.
He was wearing black jeans, a cap and glasses.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online.
